American Essay Contest 2016-2017.


     "Why our Veterans are America's Heroes"

The theme of the Americanism Essay Contest this year is "Why our Veterans are America's Heroes"



Contestants from the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades are to submit their essays before January 6th, 2017. We are hoping for a good turnout from all schools. Any member of the Elks may pick up an entry form and pass it on to a child or grandchild or any other child in the local schools.

The first, second and third place winners from each grade level will be awarded a cash prize: $75.00 for first place, $50.00 for second and $25.00 for third places. The winners will then have an opportunity to proceed to the State and the National contests.
